Four options:
1- You can upload the pdf file to some storage web like https://mega.co.nz/
2- You can install adobe acrobat PRO and save it as jpg files.
3- As someone said, use the button "print screen", then paste it in some image program, like Photoshop, and save it as jpg file.
4- You can try some freeware program you can find searching for "PDF to JPG" in google.

What's the expected population for Qianhai in the mid-long term? They should reserve large plots for super high density residential areas imo.

The first plot is already under construction: China Resources Qianhai Center! The birth of the world's greatest business district to date

I quoted your post into the thread for that project in the Skyscrapers section if you don't mind.

nice to see an entire new city rise on an empty piece of land.

They said Shimao is launching a 320m~ tower in Qianhai. Hope we can confirm it This one would be the second non Shenzhen's developer confirming a project in Qianhai after Suning. That would be great, we could hope something from Greenland, R&F and all others

Shimao is good, they usually deliver, however they also tend to build smaller than first said in the end as far as i remember from what you once said about them

Shimao is a strong developer, but quite trollish concerning heights as they usually tend to announce fake heights.

That render...is absolute perfection. For 10 years I have bowed to countless masterplans. I cheered to Lujiazui, Zhujiang, Jiangbei, Yujiapu...And whenever I did so, I also thought something far bigger, denser, taller should come. This very masterplan has everything I always dreamt of, it has tens of supertalls (a plus) yet they don't lie far from each other, but cramped in what would be the most exciting cluster ever. The layout is brilliant, no huge green or empty wasted areas, the green zones are linear and fully integrared, another big plus. Then, you also have huge, dense residential towers. This is the first actual Skyscrapercity. This is everything I expected from the future cities when I was a child. To make it even more wonderful, they are building it in a land reclamation area. Perfect, it's perfect!

Looks amazing indeed. Hope we can get some more detailed renders, but i guess the buildings themselves all do not have designs yet. But rather the layout is important. Anyway this area will be a long term project which won't finish in a long time and will hopefully give us a steady supply of supertall and megatall projects to follow

Indeed. I was afraid at first that it would be another skyscraper-in-a-park layout but it looks like the green area's in the render are lowrise roofs. I really hope they will think about street interaction. Little shops, cafe's, restaurants in the base. That is what is important.
